Here it is: The popular vote. Each of the five finalists in each of our sixty categories was nominated by you, the public. You can vote until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 5. Pick up the Best of NYC® issue on newsstands on October 14, or read it at villagevoice.com/bestof.

Every vote is automatically saved, but may be changed up until the close of the contest, at which time all saved votes are submitted for counting.
